Computing

Subject Leader: Miss. G. Ritchie 

Curriculum Statement 
 

Computing is an integral part of day to day life for us all, we find that early exposure for all pupils in school helps develop their skills from an early age and provides the future generations with the necessary skills for adult life and employment within the ever-changing technological environment we live in. Although the programmes we teach now will not be those of the future, we work hard in preparing our children for the unknown digital world.

A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. As well as the discrete Computing lessons, the children here at ISP receive, we ensure that technology is embedded throughout the curriculum.

We see E-Safety as a central focus of all Computing teaching and learning. E-safety is built in to all topics as well as us hosting regular E-Safety focus days and events.

 

We have many resources in school to develop children’s computer science, information technology and digital literacy skills. Currently, we utilise:

  • a set of tablets in our EYFS Classroom
  • a set of tablets and laptops in our KS1 Classroom
  • a set of laptops in our KS2 Classroom.
  • Interactive boards in every classroom.
We subscribe to a number of online resources to support our whole school creative curriculum including:
  • Charanga
  • Times Table Rock Stars
  • Prodigy
  • Phonics Play
  • NumBots
  • Oxford Owls
